Short, but interesting, especially given the fact that male nudes are so rare in art of this period.

I feel something about Sargent's work that I've never felt about any other artist, ever. I wouldn't consider myself an art lover, nor am I even particularly interested in art (at least for art's sake). But I could look at his painting and sketches for hours.

Worth it for the Nude Study of Thomas E. McKeller, though its reproduction pales in comparison to the life-sized version in Boston's MFA.

John Singer Sargent is best known for his formal portrait work. Little do people know that John Singer Sargent was a life-long bachelor who painted male nudes.

Too damn short. Excellent plates.
